Wow--is Chuck Shumer ready to bargain

Just watching him on C-SPAN and it's clear he's toting the "Grand Bargain" line that will cut social security.

"We don't have 60 votes in the senate, they won the house, it's a 50-50 thing, we have to be ready to cut.....blah, blah, blah."

They really are going to give it away.

1. It took an old Red-baiter like Nixon to open "Red" China

and it takes a passel of feckless Democrats to slash the Social Safety Net.

2. Chuch Shumer is a rich Wall St MF'er...

He will do whatever he can to protect his own wealth and interests. This is not the same Chuck Shumer that used to be a liberal spokesman in the House of Representatives. Just my opinion.

4. So rather than saying what he should be which is...

..that this whole fucking fiscal cliff is a goddamned made up controversy by Republicans, and that the American public overwhelmingly told Republicans to go take a fucking hike, Chuck Schumer is pulling this crap.

I expect the prez will be right there alongside Chucky with his scissors and red pen as well.

Oh well.

7. The Repubs did not "win" the House...

They held on to the House. Mostly due to gerrymandering from the state levels. They actually lost seats in the House, the Senate, and they lost the White House by an ass-kicking margin.
